museum's normal opening times are:
4pm from 1st April to the end of October. However, because of the restrictions posed by Covid 19, we are unable to open in 2020.
Admission is free! However, it costs at least £3.00 per visitor to maintain the museum so we rely on the generosity of our visitors. There is a donation box at the steward's desk.
Access for the disabled is available and wheelchairs
can manoeuvre around the museum.
